I think I’ve just developed a philosophical Theory of Everything, which is completely based on science and logical truths (statements which can not be false under any circumstance, like “Either Stephen Harper is the Prime Minister or Stephen Harper is not the Prime Minister”) and from which I can derive a complete set of ethics, morals, theory of being, and answer to any philosophical question you care to name.
Well, considering I just thought this up which doing the dishes, it might not be as concrete as I make it sound, but I have confident in it nonetheless.
Since I don’t believe that there is anything close to “research” or “discovery” in philosophy, it’s a bit strange that I care so much about it. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody’s already came up with the same idea. But that’s all part of the theory.
I love tautologies.
Perhaps I should save it for my PhD thesis.
